Sorry, but I have to remind that aprs.fi does not transmit anything to the 
APRS-IS, so the upload will be visible to aprs.fi users only. But that's 
something already.

I'm not sending anything to the APRS-IS, because a huge portion of aprs.fi 
visitors are not amateurs, and I have no way to validate which of them 
are, or are not.

Anyway, here are the instructions to use it:

If your web browser supports the Geolocation API (iphone, ipad, android 
devices with GPS, even new Firefox on a laptop with a WLAN), you can 
utilize that for uploading exact positions (or to just center the map on 
your current position without publishing it to the world):
